Walt Longmire returns for his third adventure, but this time he is in the City of Brotherly Love, where no act of kindness goes unpunished.

Walt has been the sheriff in Wyoming’s Absaroka County for twenty-four years, where his wit and charm have helped him solve many crimes. But that can’t prepare him for the savage attack on his daughter, Cady, a Philadelphia lawyer who has unwittingly become embroiled in a political cover-up. As Walt and his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, scour the city for clues, he gets help from his deputy Victoria Moretti and her family of Philly police. But Longmire wasn’t born yesterday. He’s willing to pull out all the stops to find Cady’s attacker and show the big city that this old-timer has a few moves left in his saddlebag of tricks.

Those who enjoy Tony Hillerman and James Lee Burke will delight in Johnson’s newest Sheriff Longmire adventure.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Cathy | 1/30/2014

    " Another fabulous read from Craig Johnson. Walt Longmire in Philly - it took a few pages to envision that one. But the image of Walt, Henry, and Dog driving across country in "Lola" made me laugh. This round, Walt wasn't just the sheriff, he became a father in my eyes. What a wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joanie Bowen | 1/18/2014

    " I was surprised that some people did not like this book because it was set in Philadelphia instead of Wyoming. I thought it really added to the series in a unique way. The book was very good and I liked the fact that Longmire was out of his element, far from home and hurting for his daughter at the same time. It made for some interesting moments for Walt. And can I say I love the relationship between Walt and Henry? Its everything a deep friendship should be. Terrific read! "

    " This series of books is such a delight to read. This one could be subtitled "Walt and the Cheyenne Nation take Philly", but despite the absence of the local Wyoming colorful characters, the fully fleshed out Moretti family more than makes up for it. (Oh, and a significant event that I'd read about in the series finally happens in this book -- can't wait to see if the television series goes in that direction). I enjoy the whole "fish out of water" vibe from the book, although Walt is rarely uncomfortable anywhere -- he finds allies and kindred souls in the most unlikely places. I would have liked more Henry, but a little Henry is better than none at all. I enjoyed learning more about Cady and Vic as well. These books make me laugh out loud and repeat dialogue to my spouse, and this one also left me with a huge lump in my throat at the end. Now racing to get on the list for the next book at the library, "

    " Great book that has Walt back in Philly helping his daughter who is fighting for her life in a coma. Vic comes back to her home town to help Walt out with the mystery of who attacked his daughter and solving a number of murders. "
